Frustration on resale this year?

#1
Is anyone else having a really hard time reselling an iPhone after upgrading this year? Usually every year I post my previous years model on CL and it sells in the first day. This year it's been up for a week and all I'm getting is low ball offers and scam offers from over seas.

Wow! $225 is a pretty amazing price if it's in a decent condition. If I were living in the States I'd have definitely bought it off of you - however the price will double or almost triple due to taxes, customs, and shipping to Egypt.

What size and carrier? Gazelle would give you $280 for an unlocked 32 GB AT&T 5s. The same phone on Sprint is only worth $190 to them. These prices are less than the actual value on eBay and Craigslist, but more convenient for some people. You should easily be able to sell a 32 GB AT&T iPhone 5s on Craigslist for $300. I'm guessing you're with Sprint. Their phones are in lower demand. This seems to be the case even when they are unlocked.

I would relist it on Craigslist since it's been a week.

I am on sprint and I see the lower demand for sprint. Crazy though because I sold my 5 last year within 2 hours of posting it on CL. I will repost today and see what happens.

I have only received one email for my 5s on CL. But, we have actually decided to add a line to our family share and gift it to a family member.

Maybe? But I have my sim unlocked 5s on CL for $225 and no real hits.. What has the world come toooooo!
I sold my 5s on crappy Virgin Mobile for $310. Maybe this can be chalked up to lots of idiots in my neighborhood?
